Thin mylar lyrics sheet in black print.

“Nazi Punks Fuck Off” was the fifth single by the Dead Kennedys. The record was released in 1981 on Alternative Tentacles with “Moral Majority” as the b-side. Both are taken from the In God We Trust, Inc. EP, although the version of the title track on the EP is a different recording from the single version.
The design crossed-out swastika has since become associated with both the Dead Kennedys and the anti-racist punk movement.
In the late 1970s, some members of the punk subculture on the West Coast of the United States began to use Nazi symbolism for shock effect, and others adopted neo-Nazism in earnest. Some listeners of the Dead Kennedys’ earlier songs “Kill the Poor” and “California Über Alles” missed the satirical intent behind those pieces and took Biafras lyrics at face value.
Despite their harsh view of fascism, the Dead Kennedys found favor among the nascent Nazi punk movement as radical right wing polemicists. As a result, their shows began to attract an unwanted audience of neo-Nazis. The Dead Kennedys used “Nazi Punks Fuck Off” to answer these audience members.

“Nazi Punks Fuck Off” was the unforgettable fifth single from the equally unforgettable Dead Kennedys. It was just over one minute of hardcore punk perfection. It got straight to the point, with little of their signature humor. It directly confronted the rising fascism in that early 80’s punk scene. The B-side was the much more tongue in cheek “Moral Majority”. Both songs also appeared on the In God We Trust, Inc. EP, but the single version of “Nazi Punks Fuck Off” is slightly different.

Like most of the great early punk singles, “Nazi Punks Fuck Off” has aged well. I can’t count how many times over the years I’ve seen some young punk band take a stab at it. The message has stood the test of time, and is as important now as it was in 1981. The music also sounds as fresh and angry as ever. Even as I sit here at my desk, I have to resist the urge to shout its NSFW chorus. “Nazi Punks, Nazi Punks, Nazi Punks, FUCK OFF!”. The song even managed to invade popular culture and was most recently featured in the 2015 punks vs. racist skinheads thriller The Green Room.

The Dead Kennedys always had a knack for the iconic. Look how the classic DK logo has endured for several generations of punks. The “Nazi Punks Fuck Off” artwork has become the banner for international anti-fascist groups. To summarize: “Nazi Punks Fuck Off” is one of the most important and influential punk songs of all time, by one of the most important and influential punk bands of all time.

He was on tour, lecturing on Reagan-era censorship moves, here “rebounding from the want-ads, surprised scrutinized by Candid surveillance camera,” his briefcase open in small bedroom, pens clipped to strap, old backstage tour passes posted inside.

Punk ain’t no religious cult
Punk means thinking for yourself
You ain’t hardcore cos you spike your hair
When a jock still lives inside your head

Nazi punks
Nazi punks
Nazi punks-Fuck Off!

Nazi punks
Nazi punks
Nazi punks-Fuck Off!

If you’ve come to fight, get outa here
You ain’t no better than the bouncers
We ain’t trying to be police
When you ape the cops it ain’t anarchy

[Repeat chorus]

Ten guys jump one, what a man
You fight each other, the police state wins
Stab your backs when you trash our halls
Trash a bank if you’ve got real balls

You still think swastikas look cool
The real nazis run your schools
They’re coaches, businessmen and cops
In a real fourth reich you’ll be the first to go

[Repeat chorus]

You’ll be the first to go
You’ll be the first to go
You’ll be the first to go
Unless you think
